You might need to get your weels rebalenced that can sometimes cause the car to pull to one side than the other so go to a machanic to get the weels balanced

hope this helps

Cant turn my 2003 toyota 4 runner to left or right


with the wheels on the ground, if you pull really hard on the steering wheel will the wheels turn?

Since you already replaced the pump the only thing left is the rack and pinion.

What does it mean when my key will not turn when i try to turn it on?


Check your key for wear and try your spare key. Keys are made of soft brass and the teeth wear as the car ages.You can have a perfect brand new key cut to code if your key is worn or damaged, but try your spare first to see if this is the cause..



If the car is parked with teh wheels offset the steering wheel lock can also put pressure on the key system so try rotating the wheel slightly right or left

When i have my 4 wheel drive engaged making turns


If you are in 4WD, and not on a slippery surface, the tires may be having an effect called "scrubbing" where the tire on the outside of the turn is not rotating at the same rpms as the tire on the inside of the curve. I have noticed this on my jeep wrangler in 4wd.

Using 4wd on dry or non-slippery surfaces can cause this problem, and also will cause excessive tire wear.

Try the same manuever on a gravel road or a ice patch (it's been in 90s here in Texas, so good luck on that one) and see if it is improved.

Also, would probably expect a little more effort to steer when in 4wd because the universal joints or CV joints are not in perfect alignment during a turn.

The customer may experience a rubbing-like sound during hard cornering, when the
steering wheel is turned to its full lock position. This condition may occur in either direction

If the vehicle is equipped with the 17 inch Goodyear Silent Armor Tire, inspect the tire
inboard surface and the stabilizer bar for evidence of light contact. If contact is present
perform the Repair Procedure.

I have a 2007 Pontiac G5 and the power steering started to fail gradually until now that it does it after driving the car on a stray line for a few seconds, if I turn the driving wheel left and right...


Keep in Mind that WITH NO POWER STEERING AT ALL The Faster you Drive the EASYER it is to Stear Lft & Rght. Having Said that If your Car is Hard to Steer While Sitting in PARK and Turning the Steering Wheel Left AND Right , This Sounds as if your Power Steering Pump Is Bad for1 and it May have Contaminated The STEERING RACK , this is A MAIN Component in the Steering System.

Steering wheel locks up when parked


Although the car is not in front of me, it sounds like when you park ( is this parallel parking ? ) your steering wheel is turned hard to the left or right, which creates extreme pressure on the steering wheel lock. In order to help overcome this problem, you must "armstrong" the steering wheel in the same direction the front wheels are turned. Locking up on the freeway with this same issue. Highly unlikely.

Power steering


Support front wheels off ground. Chock rear tires, get an assistant for safty. Start engine (do not put in gear) step outside of car and manually turn wheels left and right by hand. Cut off engine. Turn key back to release steering lock. Manually turn wheels by hand again. If it requires the same ammount of strength to turn wheels, then Rack and Pinion is bypassing internally. Solution... replace rack & pinion.
